Rhinoplasty is one of plastic surgeries with relatively high revision rate.
It takes a big portion in plastic surgery yet the result is highly dependent on the aesthetic sense and surgical method of the performing surgeon.
The result may look fine at the beginning but there are many cases with secondary problems such as contracture (upturned nose) or excessive movement of the implant as time goes.
There is much dissatisfaction with the appearance of the nose due to the various surgical problems and operations with no sufficient consultation with doctors.
Most cases can be corrected by secondary surgery, so it’s better to wait until the appropriate time for reoperation.But the secondary surgery has a high probability of leaving a scar or tissue damage than the first one, therefore do not be hurry and consider reoperation very carefully.
Generally, it’s good to do secondary surgery six months after the initial surgery when the tissues are overall smoother.
In simple nasal augmentation case, however, secondary surgery is possible within three months after the initial surgery.
The secondary surgery has a higher probability of damaging tissues than the first operation, therefore a very careful decision to reoperation is required.
The enforcement of an impractical correction can lead to another revision, so it’s recommended to have secondary surgery considering natural shape fit for yourself and safety.
Side effects of Rhinoplasty
1) Nasal tip drooping
2) Shorten nose / contracted nose
3) Visible nasal implant
4) Very hard nasal tip
5) Reddish nasal tip
7) Small/Big nostril
8) Broaden nostril
9) Wide nose width
Side effects of Implants
It’s mostly caused due to the characteristics of each implant, rather than the problem of the implant itself.
Autologous: secondary surgery is quite difficult compared to the artificial implant.
Also, the degree of damaged tissue is extensive. Artificial: reoperation is relatively easy compared to autologous one.
Problems such as visible implant boundaries, reddish nasal tip, visible nasal implant. It’s not because of the safety of material itself, but because of the problems that are aroused in the tissues.
It’s generally recognized that Goretex removal is too hard, however, in the case of using a Goretex professionally, the removal is similar to the silicone removal.
Thus, reoperation is not impossible with Goretex used.
It has an infiltrative nature like Goretex. Medpor removal is difficult because the tissue easily goes into the implant.
When it is excessively used for the tip supporting implant, can cause side effect that the nasal tip turns red.
It’s important not to make the nasal tip too high using Medpor, and it can be substituted with nasal septal cartilage when corrective rhinoplasty is performed.
Injection Side Effect
It’s a problem of using non-medical substance injections in the past. There are rare side effects currently by using only medical injections.
Deformation due to trauma
In case of deformation caused by trauma, there are many complaints about the appearance for the therapeutic purpose rather than the cosmetic purpose.
Corrective surgery should be done with the accurate diagnosis on the damaged area.
